I am a recent graduate and would like to move into the IT Security field. My degree was just straight CS with no particular security focus.
I have recently acquired a copy of a CISSP study guide and have started to work through it. Having discovered that candidates with less than 5 years experience can only sit the exam as an associate, I'm wondering: is it worth it at this stage in my career? Are there other certifications that would be more suitable for recent graduates?
